<< Back to Practice Areas

The Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) is the criminal code of the United States Armed Forces. Besides having to follow local and state laws, members of the military also have to follow a special set of laws applicable only to them.

Military commanders and prosecutors treat violations of the UCMJ extremely seriously. Many commanders and prosecutors will seek harsh sentences in cases involving violations of military law.
